    Great song. Sabbath didn't release a bad album from 70-78 IMO.

    One of my Sabbath go-to's...

    Stone cold jam, I turn it up 90% of the time it comes on. My only complaint is that it's played out at this point.

    I always thought sabbath had great lyrics. Assumed it was Ozzy but apparently Geezer wrote most of them.

    I think that people loving this song has more to do with where they were in life when it came out than it actually being a good song. Ozzy's voice sounds like crap. The guitar playing is very simplistic, with the fuzz turned up to 11. It's not what I consider a "good" song but if you were at a party or chasing women or getting fucked up every day when you heard it, it probably puts you in a good place. I love early Neil Young but his guitar playing was shit.

    I could sit here and post a different song every minute for the next 24 hours, without even having to use google for ideas, that are better than that song.

    Most? You can thank Geezer for the Sabbath lyrics and Bob Daisley, and even Lemmy, for the solo stuff. Pays the musicians a flat fee and keeps all the publishing for himself and Sharon.

    Dio > Ozzy

    War Pigs is a truly great song. Which is why it holds up and enjoys the legacy it does. The lyrics are on point and timeless. Geezer Butler doesn't get the credit he deserves.

    Was recently thinking about how quietly subversive the lyrics to Hole in the Sky are. Dude was a genius.

    ^ this is absolutely true. Though I wouldn't put as much stock in oneself.
